repository management tool built on top of git
Repo is a repository management tool that the Android developers built on top of Git. Repo unifies the many Git repositories when necessary, does the uploads to the Android revision control system, and automates parts of the Android development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git in the context of Android. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path. In working with the Android source files, you will use Repo for across-network operations. For example, with a single Repo command you can download files from multiple repositories into your local working directory.
repo is an unusual tool because it downloads all of its own Python modules using GPG-signed git tags, and stores those files as part of the project that it is working with. So this package just provides the wrapper script, which provides the GPG signing keys for verifying that the correct Python code was downloaded.
